Manchester United locked in three-way battle to land £24m ace

Published Add your comment

Barcelona have joined Manchester United and Real Madrid in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, according to reports in Germany.

European giants Manchester United and Real Madrid have both reportedly launched a bid for the 23-year-old German international in hope that they can land the deep-lying playmaker before the end of the month.

However reports suggest Barcelona have now joined the aforementioned duo in the battle to entice Gundogan away from Jurgen Klopp's side.

Gundogan, who has featured just once for the Black and Yellows this season due to a back injury he picked up on the opening day of the Bundesliga campaign, is out of contract at the end of the season.

His contract situation could leave Dortmund with no choice but to cash in on the £24million-rated star if he does not agree a new deal in the next few months.

German newspaper Bild claim Barcelona have followed up their initial talks with Gundogan's representatives, which were held in December, by setting up a meeting with the player's cousin.

Gundogan would be an attractive signing for all three suitors as he is eligible to play in the Champions League.
